It's that time of year again when Olympia opens its doors to the world of IT in Education and BETT begins. The themes of BETT this year are Managing Change and Learning for Less which are obviously very topical, however I expect that fewer than normal will be going this year due to budgetary constraints. Even though tickets are free (and still available) the transport and cover costs can be large, although you justify the costs on visiting the Microsoft stand and finding about their money saving tips and licensing changes (more later).
I will again be there all day Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and would love to meet up with as many of you as possible. We can either arrange a meeting before hand, or just get in touch on the day by mobile, email or Twitter (@rpwillis) - although it can be hard to hear your phone amongst all the hubbub.
but most of all is the networking opportunity with people you normally only email or talk to on the phone.
I hope to see you there.
